Dr Hwang has been my Nephrologist for over 7 years. She has been consistently thorough, extremely professional and spends a great deal of time with me as her patient. Dr Hwang has consulted with and developed my treatment with my other specialists. Although extremely busy, Dr Hwang continues to demonstrate professional compassion in addition to her excellent medical treatment.

Dr Hwang is one of the best doctors I have visited in the last 20yrs. She is interested in the whole patient. She listens carefully and is not one to just rush patients thru. I feel fortunate to have found her.
